Russians in MidWar

by DaBoss on Mon Aug 22, 2011 12:36 pm
With my British Armoured Car Company finished except for the Typhoons for the Battlefront Euro-Tournament in September, its time to start on my next army for the Newbury Colours and Reading Warfare Tournaments.
Both these are running MidWar Tournaments and as I like the Eastern Front was a choice between Germans and Russians.
With the latest release of the KV-1e models by Zvezda, it had to be Russians, so Mixed Tankovy Batalon from the Eastern Front Book.

You have to take 3 Combat Platoons so I've gone for Red Army (Fearless Conscripts)
T-26 Tankovy Company (10) T-26S obr 1939 @205pts
Medium Tankovy Company (10) T-34 obr 1941 @605pts
Heavy Tankovy Company (6) KV-1e @620pts

This compulsory takes up 1430pts of the total 1750pts

So now some Corps Support (both of these are Fearless Trained):
Razvedki Platoon - 1 Command Rifle/MG, 6 Rifle/MG Teams and 4 captureed Sd Kfz 251 halftracks @160pts
Guards Rocket Mortar Battalion - 4 Katyushas, 1 Truck,...

Malifaux - Molly Squidpiddge Crew

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:26 am
I've got a thing about painting female models in Malifaux,they are my favourite sculpts.

So when looking for my next crew i was looking through the Resurrectionists (as no-one in our club was doing them) and was not happy with the Masters available, then I read the rules for Henchmen and saw Molly Squidpiddge and knew that was my next purchase.
I also picked up some scenic bases at the same time - really like them plus the add weight to the models when placed on the tabletop.

It's going to be interesting painting faded and dirty clothes but still trying to capture the female beauty...

So we have:
Molly Squidpiddge as Master (Henchman)
3 x Rotten Belle's 12ss
1 x Rogue Necromancy 10ss
Total 22ss

So running a 25ss Scrap - planning on adding a Necrotic Machine and would like more Belle's but need something different than the current ones, anyone got some ideas from other manufacturers???

MK1 Rhino Chasis Conversion Tutorial 9th July

by Cain Tiberius on Sun Jul 10, 2011 12:46 am
Hey folks.

A couple months ago I posted pics of my MK1 Rhino/Razorback conversion, and had calls to show how I made it. Well I suck at WiP or tutorials. But I am working on another and have taken alot more pics.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

First of all I have to say the way I made the Grills is different from the first time. But I was able to get them made in 1/4 of the time.

I noticed that the interior of the rear hatch to the Rhino kit has a nice Grill patern. So I used Greenstuff to make 4 positive molds of the patern. Its inportnant to try an keep the green stuff about 1mm thick. (Thicker will mean more work on the next stage as I found out)

Image

Then I cut 4 pieces of plasticard to the shape of the grills including the surounding colars. (I first did it with paper till I got the desired size.) Then I did the same with the Green Stuff moldings...

Malifaux - Latest Painting effort

by DaBoss on Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:17 am
Had some spare time last week, so added some paint to some models.
Still plenty of work to be done but they are a pleasure to work on.

Cassandra the Showgirl, to add to my Rasputina Crew. Nice combat abilities and with Grande Finale might be able to change the results of the Strategy.

December Acolyte - Some long range sniping from this model to add to the short range ice blasts from the rest of the crew.

Trying to get a dirty nasty look to Teddy, think it will look better once I've done his claws, teeth and eyes.
But what to put on his front heart shaped space???
